what's it like as a venue?
it was more of an open plan boozer than a proper gig venue but that was a couple of years ago.
a stage in one half and they pull a curtain across. It's a nice place, but a bit odd for gigs.
Last time we played it was in Shoreditch.
i asked as i know nothing about london.
I know about Albert Square & the Queen Vic
He's a lovely guy but doesn't get about as much as he used to.
this is of Theo quality.
And why have I been compared to Theo twice this week?
it was an ok venue about 4 years ago.
And that was SUB-Theo. I demand a recount!
I claimed to be Edward Douglas in a Spartacus reference whilst simultaneously explaining that the reference wouldn't work unless various other people did the same and otherwise I'd just look like I was lying.
and Archway tube in North London, on Holloway Road. It's not a place which will get walk-past trade, as there's no other venues near, but it is on the small gig circuit, people know where it is.
nice high stage, airy, good dancefloor, but if I was a promoter, I wouldn't be too enamoured that basically anyone can come into the pub and listen for free, and even watch if they stand in the right place.
means the jumps much worse when I meander off into the audience mid-set.
at The Nambucca about a year ago. It looks like a really old big undecorated classroom. It's hard to get served too. It's not a great venue. Tilly were great however.
And on gig nights you can't get in to the pub bit.... so dan_thw is wrong.
? explain. nambucca IS a pub.
you can't get in full stop, so there's no free riders stealing our precious music watching space. In other news, I like Nambucca.
i like the fact it's 5 minutes from my house. can't remember the last time i was there tho.
not bad. High stage is good, though i prefer a mid-level stage myself.
As a general place, is good. But then I'm biased. I have 2 (or maybe 3) friends who work there.
Might be going there again this Saturday, depends whats going on - anyone know who is playing?
my band are playing on Friday 5th October.
you should all come down and hug me
we will entertain you
